I love you, Libba Bray.
Gemma is a beautiful character, so obviously flawed and hidden under layers of secrets. Sure, she's not perfect; one can argue that she is selfish and irrational.
But doesn't it portray the sixteen year old character so well?
Because I swear she's me sometimes. Jumping to conclusions, thinking everything is safe.
This book is lovely, filled with beautiful imagery to sweep me up to my feet. Gah!
And oh my goodness, Kartik. So much love for Kartik.
